They currently *are* in chronological order. Oldest added links at the top, newest added links at the bottom.
When I said that the newest entry was "The History of the Web", I meant that it was the first new link *in the update* - Every link that comes after "The History of the Web" is a new addition in this update. Sorry for the confusion due to my poor wording.
602 Name: Paperplane : 2020-06-13 20:53
Aaah, I understand.
Okay, do you update in batches? Then I would do
Maybe add a "(NEW!)" tag to the latest entries
and keep that until the next batch of links comes.
603 Name: Snooper : 2020-06-14 13:13
Okay, do you update in batches?
The "(NEW!)" tags are something I will definitely consider doing with future updates for sure. I'll try and figure out the best/nicest looking way of doing it.

Is bus stop down? There’s a 502 error

Yes. The Bus Stop is hosted on-prem and the admin's moving out of his current apartment. Might be out for a week, hopefully it'll come back faster.

Most of the obscure boards have been taken down or have no significant activity whatsoever. Almost all of the imageboards linked in this thread no longer exist. The few active boards left are so small (<50 posters) that you can easily tell who's posting based on their linguistic patterns.

This is one of my favourite internet places. Looking into koronbas past led me to discovering Speder2, who does the music for the games here. This is the website of a group that makes small, short games, with nice art and music.http://kohada.ushimairi.com/
Similar, here's the site of a single person who makes rpgmaker games, most "famously" (still rather obscurely) Neftelia, a very good vaguely-yume nikki fangame.http://etgmz14.g1.xrea.com/

I disliked that no return area in neftelia until I found the hidden room that reminds me of some type of satirical ritualistic abuse.

I just recently watched Haibane Renmei and found out that a fan forum is still going too.https://cff.ssw.net/forum/index.php
There are still posts from 2003 on here

It's always great to see people end up liking HR so much they always end up finding that one forum.

It's not just imageboards. Western forums aren't doing too hot either, even on non-nerdy ones there are people who are open about either the state of the hobby they're doing declining and being less fun or the forum becoming worse and debating ever logging back on. I wonder if everything is becoming worse or people are just growing old and bitter in general.
Seeing all the dead links on here was a sad sight, but I did find an imageboard that gave me a nice interaction that made me feel good.
"the anger and political rage you are fueling yourself with is going to take years off of your life my man. it isn’t productive.
spend less time online, talk to more people, i promise you things aren’t so bad. and when you do spend time online, try to have fun, otherwise what’s really the point?"
Feels like surfer wisdom.

Genuinely some great reads there, I'll definitely be returning to it. I'm not sure if there's much point in making an account, but I definitely would've if I had seen Haibane Renmei in the mid 2000s

There is nothing to do offline besides going to work and falling asleep. Conversation is mentally draining and a waste of time. The only reason I still bother owning a computer is to do personal research, finish my backlogs, and to discover music. The internet hasn't been "fun" for close to a decade.

It's part of the reason why I've drastically cut back on lurking imageboards (besides the drop-off in post quality). I'm tired of recognizing the same fifty or so anonymous posters by the way they type or by what pictures they usually attach to their posts. It's the most surreal thing and it's not just on imageboards. The only website I use that still gives off the atmosphere of being significantly populated is Twitter. It feels as if the internet is slowly losing its voice over time.

And, as it seems, the progrider (dis.tinychan.net/prog/) is finally shutting down along with a few boards from dis.tinychan.net.
To quote the admin:
"Well, as I have no time to deal with the bitchy problems on this board. and since it has mostly long since outlived its purpose, I will be shutting the board down for good. I'll leave it up and running in for a few weeks before it's gone.
If you have any questions, then contact me directly."

This might be slightly off-topic, but does anyone remember this one short-lived imageboard experiment from, I wanna say late 2000s, where every post was automatically machine-translated? The goal was internet cultural exchange, I think it might have been called 10chan, and it was a pretty funny place for the short time it was alive. I think a japanese guy made it and the few japanese denizens that were around made some genius posts in there, like one about generating power from hikki masturbation that I remember to this day.
I'd be very happy I could find even a partial archive of it, or just some other people who remember. I have to make sure it wasn't just a dream I had.

If you look at the list of all threads (https://web.archive.org/web/20140720131137/http://10ch.org/gazou/subback.html),
there is a post titled "Power generation(発電)", but it hasn't been archived :(

Thanks, it's good to know I'm not going crazy. I suppose I should have checked the web archive first thing, but I haven't used it before so it didn't come to mind.
Well, perhaps some things are best left as memories.
I wonder if a similar concept would work better now that machine translation has advanced a bunch.

If you're looking for active usenet groups, google groups aggregates new posts I think.
It's mostly file sharing these days, people prefer moderated areas with multimedia support and spam control.
697 Name: Anonymous : 2020-11-08 20:54
The filesharing and text discussion "faces" of usenet are now two distinct worlds as no one uses traditional usenet clients for the binary groups anymore. A number of text groups are active (not when compared to the 90s usenet, but compared to english textboards for example, they can be considered so). These are exclusively tech themed groups (c, unix, gopher and so on), all the others are completely dead. The problem of usenet today, among others, is the absurdly large topical structure with thousands now empty groups made at the time when there were actually people on it.

Reminds me of all those niche text/imageboards out there. Everyone makes a new one even though the ones that are already there barely get any traffic to begin with and most of the new ones aren't even unique enough to justify their existence.
